Reviewed 14 September 2013

Nice little place, well located in an artsy area of Vienna, full of shops selling "stuff and things" that you might not find elsewhere.

The room was clean and simple (standard European fare), and considering its location was far from expensive. However, it was a little noisy at night, but nothing that stopped me sleeping well.

I made the mistake of paying to park in the underground Astoria garage up the road (€18), the hotelier told me that parking on the road was free (though by the time I got there I hadn't seen any spaces nearby anyway).

Room Tip: My ground floor, road facing room was a little noisy. I would ask for a higher room next time, or on...

The staff is amazing. We wanted to come a day early, but couldn't find transportation, and Peter (owner) helped us via email and was very responsive. For being a smaller hotel, it was great they had staff there 24/7. They also have taken the time to create a map of nearby restaurants, banks, cafes, etc, with their own synopsis of each. Overall- very caring and attentive.

The room was small, but clean, and was stocked with affordable snacks. As with most hotels in the area, there is no a/c so you have to sleep with the windows open, and can hear some people outside at night, but it's not a major road. The restroom and showers were also very clean.

The included breakfast was traditional for the area: cold cuts, breads, jams, cereal, fruit, and was served in a very nice dining room (also clean), where the staff served tea and coffee for a small price.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Pension Wild.

A small note- they do cater to the gay community (which I think is great), but I guess it could overwhelm some people.

Like many others said this is not the place to stay if one is looking for a high end or top-notch experience. The men's sauna located in the entrance is really disorientating and not the place for those shocked by what ostensibly is a men's covert meeting place. Perhaps the biggest disappointments were the lack of air condition and the hand pump toilet that didn't work with the smell of sewer gas.

I read a lot of the negative comments about the front desk staff and the one particular manager and have to agree, he was not pleasant AT ALL. I read a lot of these reviews and think that you have to look at all of them to get an accurate sense of what a place is like.

Stayed over for 10 nights with a friend. The pension is manned by Mr Wild and his staff all whom were always ready to assist and help with your needs. Breakfast selections are not wide ranging but definitely had no qualms about the quality. Beds were comfy and sheets are changed every 2/3 days or whenever requested which is a plus point. Its location is also ideal as it is situated near the U Bahn's ( rail's) and to tourists spots. Toilets are rather clean and the Wi-Fi works pretty well too. Will definitely stay over again on my nxt visit to Wien.

Definitely not a 5 star experience but the rooms and washrooms are clean. We stayed in a double room with a bathroom on the floor. Other then the bathroom being in use for a while a few times (strangely the showers were never that busy) it work really well, I was actually amazed by the cleanliness.

The location is amazing. We walked everywhere. However, I had some difficulty finding the hotel the first time. I speak no German which was probably part of the problem but I found a person who spoke French that pointed me in the right direction then an English speaker how focussed me in on the exact street. Once I had been there once though it was very easy to find.

Breakfast was great. Not that wide of a selection of items, but the quality of every option is amazing. And the breakfast staff is great too.

Warning there is a bathhouse below, Entrance is between the checkin desk and the breakfast room that there were a lot of 'interesting' charaters coming and going from.

No, Pension Wild wont be a good choice if you look for a five star experience but the location (Close to the city center without being in the center of it) with the trams and subway just minutes from the Hotel makes every euro spent on the living worth it.
But... This time i was placed on floor one, and i do not know if i´m being lucky before but i found it very very noisy, not a thing i´ve noticed in my earlier visits to Pension Wild.
As always the staff was fantastic and helpful. Breakfast very basic, no hot food just the basic buffet breakfast, fine for me, good value for the low price (breakfast included in the room price).

This was my second time staying at Pension Wild. The service is very good and friendly. This time I stayed in an apartment across the main building. In contrast to the rooms, the apartment was very modern with lots of space, incl. a kitchen and dining area. Though being on the ground floor, it was a bit dark, and there was almost no wi-fi (though there is in the main building). Overall, still a great value for Vienna if you don't need luxury but appreciate cleanliness and a good breakfast.
